Update: This charity has been overwhelmed by the need and can no longer fulfill requests. They have no affiliation with Crayola and this article has been updated in response to their wish that we no longer send people to their website.

In case you haven’t heard by now, Crayola released Colors of The World products which allows every child to feel included and accurately color using the different skin tones of the world. And one company wants to help bring these products to classrooms across the nation.

In fact, (no longer available) Teachers And Educators Can Receive Free Colors of The World Crayons. Here’s How…

How Teachers Can Receive Free Crayons

The charity is a non-profit organization that was founded to focus on the small act of buying multicultural crayons, markers and colored pencils for schools and non-profit organizations they were familiar with within their local community.

    I once taught a beautiful black girl who used to draw herself as white with blonde hair and blue eyes. I asked her to tell me about her picture and she said it’s how she wanted to look. I was working at a predominately white school. This broke my heart. I never want another child to feel this.

  2. Stephanie Race says:

    It says the application process is closed for the Crayon Projects.

  3. Kristen Yard says:

    That breaks my heart, too! I am so glad that Crayola came out with this amazing crayon line to include every child!

  4. Kristen Yard says:

    Thank you for letting us know, Stephanie!

  5. I work in Childcare and would love these for our Children as they love to colour in

  6. Kristen Yard says:

    Hi, Annalisa! Aren’t these amazing?!

  7. Donna Rupp says:

    I teach in a Title 1 school. In my classroom, I have many different races. When they have to draw a picture of themselves, they often say, I colored myself their way because I don’t have my color.

  8. Ruth Lipschutz says:

    I would like to know how to get these crayons for my grandson’s school. It’s a small school with a wonderful staff and a multi ethnic, culturally diverse population. I’m sure they would greatly appreciate these materials. Art and music are a part of the regular curriculum. Thank you in advance.

  9. I would love some of these , I have a very diverse , multicultural setting even a a childminder.

  10. Janice Perez says:

    I am a kindergarten teacher and every day we color and create my children are the league of three races: American, Indian and Spanish. Which is felt in the color of the skin. When they take self-portraits it is difficult for them to identify the color that goes with their skin. Many of them are colored yellow, black or brown.
    I think this initiative is excellent as it promotes the multiculture found in our classroom.

  11. Danielle Oke says:

    We have a small school with children with roots all around the world. These colours would be a blessing for self images.

  12. Kristen Yard says:

    That’s wonderful! We just love this crayon line!

  13. Kristen Yard says:

    Yes, it is so important for all kids to be included!

  14. I would like some however I am in Canada. It seems to not allow me to purchase any or put in my address. If you can ship to Ontario please let me know what I need to do

  15. I you can’t find them, Walmart and Target have been selling these products for years. Try looking there.

  16. What a great idea! It’s just what we need in our multicultural communities.

  17. Awesome idea

I applied for this way back in August when school started to benefit the before and after school program I am a counselor for because these crayons would really benefit or program. The children would have loved them. Never heard a word after I applied. I ended up just buying some out of pocket for all the kids to share.
